X-Com Collectors Edition

The Wargamer

  • Excerpt: Gaming has come a long way since X-Com: UFO Defense was introduced in 1994 but I have come across few games with so much lasting appeal, addictive properties and replay value.

  • Excerpt: Referred to as “a huge, satisfying hit off the nostalgia bong,” by my eloquent pal Steve Tilley, X-COM Collector’s Edition is, indeed, a retro buff’s dream, a harkening back to the days (a mere half decade ago) when games were perhaps more graphically simplistic yet characteristically more deep,...

This is a scaled-down, greatly simplified version of the original.

GameSpot
13 October 1999
  • Summary: Before you get too excited about the prospect of playing MicroProse's classic turn-based game by e-mail, you should know that this is a scaled-down, greatly simplified version of the original. The strategic and role-playing aspects are missing, as well as the variety of weapons.
  • Pros: N/A

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified - Review

GAME Group plc
22 August 2013
  • Conclusion: If The Bureau has a failing it's that the pieces don't always fit together as well as they should. The missions themselves are strong, and only get better the more deeply you engage with the various tactical options. It's everything around them that gets in the way.
  • Pros: A true tactical shooter, Very nice visuals, Combat abilities are many and varied
  • Cons: Tough to start with, Friendly AI needs babysitting, The story goes off the rails

Análisis The Bureau XCOM Declassified (pc)

Mundogamers
28 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Puede que no lo creas, pero la mayoría de juegos que han triunfado en esta generación son híbridos. Algunos han entremezclado los disparos con la aventura y otros con el rol, y han salido buenos juegos y grandes ideas.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

PC Only
28 October 2012
  • Summary: Aan XCOM: Enemy Unknown is niet heel erg veel aandacht besteed qua reclame. Dit is eigenlijk best raar, want XCOM: Enemy Unknown wordt gemaakt door niemand minder dan Firaxis. Deze ontwikkelaar is vooral bekenf van de Sid Meier’s Civilization-serie.
  • Pros: Tactisch erg diep, Vele uren aan gameplay, Uitdagende gameplay, Geeft gevoel dat je echt de leider bent, Jouw wil is wet qua keuzes
  • Cons: Posities selecteren werkt niet altijd mee
